I have a case study to do which states: "A young college student arrives in the emergency department holding his arm close to his body. His wrist is obviously misshapen, but swelling is minimal. He tells you he was playing basketball with friends an hit the gym wall after running toward the goal for a lay-up shot. He complains of pain with attempted flexion or rotation of the wrist. A radiograph confirms a wrist fracture, and cast application is planned."
The question I have is: What intervention should receive priority?
I believe it's Immobilization???? but my med-surge book has one paragraph on wrist fractures which explains nothing, CAN ANYONE HELP, PLEASE
